Just wondering if anyone can help me out.
My partner and I and our kids moved in together and he called Centrelink to let them know. At the time the Centrelink staff said I didn't need to also call and that everything was fine.
I receive only FT A&B and child care rebate. I elect to get FT A&B at the end of the financial year, after lodging my tax return and I have the child care rebate paid directly to the child care center.
DP was receiving a partial single parent payment, FTA&B and school kids bonus. Obviously he lost the partial SPP when we moved in together and has also switched to financial year FTA&B.
What I'm unsure about is the child care rebate for DDs child care. I receive both the 50% CCB and the low income rebate, meaning that I'm only paying about 20% of the regular childcare fees.
So far the child care invoices have remained the same. I thought they would have gone up, now that our household income has effectively doubled to about $100k.
Are the child care fees going to increase to reflect the increase in household income? Or are they going to stay the same as my income hasn't changed, and DD is my daughter? Is it similar to child support in that respect?
I'm loath to spend three hours on hold just to ask one question, so any help would be appreciated.

CCB should take into account your joint income, but CCR will remain the same.
I would call them and let them know, otherwise you will end up with a debt.

CCB is calculated on the household income not just yours so you will need to let them know.

You can adjust it on the Centrelink phone App

Have a look online to see if you can update your details there. Else give them a call next week. Being on hold for three hours is better than racking up an unexpected debt.
